Things to Look for  |  Map of Richmond

History of Richmond  |  Map of Richmond
Originally on the main road to Port Arthur, Richmond developed through the first half of the 1800s.

It even had its own Convict Gaol (jail). When the causeways between Hobart and Sorell were built in 1872, the town was bypassed and has become a well preserved example of an 1800s colonial village.

Most of the original sandstone buildings have been preserved and renovated.Map of Richmond Tasmania Main Street

St. John’s Roman Catholic Church is also Australia’s oldest surviving Catholic church building.

Much of the timber in the church’s cool peaceful interior was harvested by convicts on the Tasman Peninsula, near Port Arthur. Look for it across the Coal River, just near the Richmond Bridge.
